free margaritas gallery tour

the week started out with a foodie party.  royal fig catering is new to the area and hosted a fantastic grand opening party.  they did everything right.  I had a slight diversion from my vegetarian diet for this beef carpaccio, better pics of their food can be found on their blog entry from the event

royal fig carpaccio

also offered was a nice selection of beer and wine.  I really enjoyed the white bordeaux.

el chile free margaritas

we set out for lunch on saturday.  had a few cervezas packed for a trip to torchy's tacos (tacos w/o beer is like a bicycle with out a seat).  then, we stumbled upon a new el chile location.  one of our favorite east side eateries.  the "FREE MARGARITAS" sign caused to rethink our lunch destination...

two free margarita per person.  lunch for a family of five for under $20!

bay6 gallery

we stopped by bay6 gallery to attend the closing of, So many things.... by j. haley

and to deliver a birthday pinata to our friend, artist sharon kyle kuhn

I had my way with pattrick the pinata and liberated some cervezas.

encaustic lessons

sharon offers lessons in encaustics and did a demonstration for the kids.


then we made our way over to co lab.  I participated in a project for alyssa taylor wendt.  I repeated a story that was recorded by a previous person, who had done the same thing.... like the game of telephone.  the kids played outside. 

co lab seems to help people experience art, not observe it.  I enjoyed this facade of a typical american home  that teetered back and forth in the wind, seemingly always on the verge of catrastophe.

I returned sunday evening to meet the charming alyssa taylor wendt and experience the completion of her project.  as expected, the final version of each story was both extremely abbreviated and skewed from the original.

sunday had us returning to our wimberley off grid home project.  I had taken 4x8 sheets of plywood and ripped them into 2x8 planks.  I applied ebony stain and floor grade clear coat.  the new planks are to be our flooring. our install progress was once again limited by batteries.  I had managed to leave one of the cordless drills in austin from the home projects of last week.  not easy to have the tools split among two locations,  half of what I need is not where I need it.

leonard cohen

I completed a few framing projects.  we purchased the leonard cohen poster when we saw him at the long center last year

caroline wright

we recently purchased this piece from our friend, artist caroline wright.
